The teachers are, for the most part, really good, but the administration is horrific. They were very unwelcoming to our family and we simply couldn't figure out the reason. Later I found out from other parents who sent their children there that the principal and especially the assistant principal often act as bullies. Furthermore, most of the students in this school come from underprivileged background and often have learning disabilities and behavioral issues. They often distract other students in classes. The school is located in one of the worst parts of Bloomington and the building is outdated. If you have an option of sending your child to Jackson Creek, you should. Tri-North's administrators are simply not equipped to deal with so many problems that they have in this school.
Tri-North is a wonderful school, with teachers dedicated to enhancing their students' knowledge and guiding them towards success. When I've had problems my teachers have done an excellent job of communicating with my parents and finding a solution. The teachers are supportive, encouraging, and very good at what they do. The teachers aren't the only ones at Tri-North who deserve to be noticed. The custodial staff is pleasant and makes sure to keep Tri-North a clean learning environment, and principal leadership is great.
I think that Tri- North middle school is ok but it is not the best school in the world their is a lot of bullying and half of the time the teachers will never help you plus if you do have problem and you want the teachers to keep informing you then they don't plus many times the teacher is not in the class especially if they have a student teacher.
I think Tri-North is especially great because they don't allow bullying, this is not tolerated, the principals are wonderful. But the teachers don't keep in touch with you when you ask them to if your child is having problems or difficulty. They have an excellent band program.
